Re: open(2) support for sockets



i've patched some source files in busybox and the ash shell which it
includes. simple changes to open() and fopen() in those sources seemed
to reflect perfectly in the i/o redirection tests i did. before i start
begin to patch libc privately, does anybody know of some caveats i should
be on the look-out for?

fwiw, since domain sockets exist within the regular fs namespace, i'd
imagine that the burden of proof should rest w/ those averse to the idea,
not w/ the proponents. not being to read/write an object on the filesystem
seems like more of a bug than a missed feature.
